James Snape, programmer, .NET wonk, English Guy, DasBlog contributor, theme writer, and Audio Visual guy in high school, all around a generally pleasant fellow much like you and I (except possibly for the English thing) is being sucked into work at Microsoft after five years working at Exony.

He's buddies at Exony have this little message for James:

"Thank you to James Snape from all at Exony Ltd, good luck at Microsoft you will be sorely missed."

We all wish James good luck working for The Man. Go ahead over to his blog and see if you can crash DasBlog with congratulatory comments on this post. If it crashes, it's likely his code in DasBlog. If it doesn't crash, it's totally mine. ;)

I agree with dp, you should join Microsoft.

There's also Chris Tavares, making the move to the patterns & practices group. Come to Nerd Dinner at Washington Square on the 9th to congratulate him and send him off to Seattle!

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your kind words. It was very nice to come into work and see all the comments that everyone had left. The blog is still up so it must be your code at work. My particular brand of high school geekery was backstage theatre but it’s genetically the same at A/V :-).

James.
